This is an interesting idea if we've ever seen one: Nobbs Radford Architects has proposed that Sydney, Australia deal with its housing shortage by turning some of the city's 360,000 swimming pools into granny flats.
More details, and a survey after the jump.
From an article in the Sydney Morning Herald:
By 2036 more than 630,000 new homes will be needed to accommodate Sydney's population, which is expected to grow to 6 million. But instead of turning traditionally low-rise suburbs into vast stretches of apartment blocks, part of the growth could be housed within some of NSW's 360,000 swimming pools, Alison Nobbs said.
